It is advertised as weather-tight, however, cold air leaks in around the door flap.
I really like the locking mechanism but our cats get around the one way locks by scratching and pulling at the door with their claws.
However, it is adequate to the job, the cats like access to the outdoors, and I don't have to get up to open the door 10 times a night.
EDIT: After owning this product for awhile, I am lowering the rating quite a bit. The door leaks a LOT of cold in, not only wind around the door, but allows a lot of the house heat to leak out just because the plastic is rather thin. I would NOT recommend this door for areas that get very cold. Speaking of the thin plastic, the locks DO NOT work at all, as our cats pushed through anyway and broke the door flap in half!
My cats love it! They go in and out of it all the time. They were used to a cat door at the old place we lived at with a sliding door cat door so this was a breeze but then maybe we just have smart cats, LOL!
The reason for 4 and not 5 stars is simply insulation. We live in NY and its incredibly cold here right now. When sitting near the window where this is installed I can feel a slight chill entering the room. This is probably because I have yet to apply the insulation tape which came with the product though. I am sure once I seal up all the tiny gaps it will be better insulated. The flap is held closed by a strong magnet (rare earth magnet I think) but tonight there was a strong wind and it managed to push the flap open once but it locked right back into place.
The direction control switches are good and allow us to let the cats in but not back out again.
Overall I recommend this product.
My biggest disappointment has to do with how sturdy it is when locked. I purchased this specifically so I could lock the cats in at night so they don't tangle with the local wildlife. (Skunks, coyotes and large cats like bobcats and mountain lions.)
While the door was locked, one of my cats decided she wanted out and she managed to snap the plastic door into at least 3 pieces. (I haven't actually managed to find them all.) This left me with a hole in the window. Fortunately I had not screwed the thing into place yet so this was easy to rectify.
I think if you're okay with fastening this into place and don't intend to actually use the locking mechanism, it should actually be just fine. But if you have to lock in a determined cat, you might want to see what your other options are.
